New Eyes, Refreshed Prayers!

Yesterday I was printing out some of the wonderful scripture patches from some of our recent orders! I love each of them!

What a wonderful blessing! A blessing that could easily be missed. A blessing that has been missed in the past. As I continue to ask God for His eyes, His heart and to see His blessings all around me, this is one that is pretty special.

I choose to see it. Embrace it. Praise Him for it!

All these wonderful bits of His word! And not only bits of His word, but each is associated with the name of a child! One of His beloved....

As I read through each scripture word for word, it becomes a prayer for the child who's name is also written. His word comes to life in a new way. My eyes prayers refreshed. Here are a few...

Allie Shae ~ "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust; his truth shall by thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day." Psalm 91:4-5

Griffin Tate ~"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love." 1 Cor. 16:13-14

Mahayla Faith ~ "Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings." Psalm 17:8

Alexis Rae ~"The Lord will watch over your life no matter where you go, both now and forever." Psalm 121:8

Adalyn Joy ~"These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be full." John 15:11

We've always prayed over our dolls and the children receiving them, but I thank you Lord for new eyes. Thank you for the opportunity to pray for each of these children in the fullness of your Spirit!

May each of you be blessed today. May we each seek to know Him more!

Too Cute...Tuesday!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much we love the doll we bought for our daughter, Anna Grace! It was the perfect gift to celebrate the two year anniversary of her adoption day. Thank you so much for the love and care you put into your dolls. They mean so much to those of us giving and receiving them!
"Love never gives up,ever loses faith,
is always hopeful, and endures through
every circumstance." I Corinthians 13:7

I love the scripture you chose for her!
Anna are beautiful!
Thanks for sending us your pictures!

Marvelous Monday!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Boy, I did not think that I would be announcing the winner of this bed an entire week later than expected!

Reminds me of how much we think we know...when we really don't know anything! =)

God has His purposes however and I trust in them! I praise Him for the healing He has given my body. I praise Him for the protection in health over my family! Thank you Lord!

This morning as I chose the winner of the Baby be Blessed doll bed, I smiled as I noticed that the amount raised was the exact amount that the bed would have been sold for on our site! Isn't that funny? God is awesome!

The winner of this doll bed is....................

Mrs. Ashley Bourg!!
Congratulations Ashley!

Thanks to every single one of you who made a donation towards this wonderful cause. More than anything I continue to ask for your unwavering prayers over this family!

Have a very blessed day everyone!

So Sorry!

Monday afternoon I came down with what I thought was the flu. Actually I think I did have the flu and then as the Dr. confirmed with an awful swab of the throat this morning...strep.

Since we were out of town for an extended weekend and then getting sick on Monday, the ol' inbox is pretty full! Plus I know that I still need to draw for the bed giveaway...

I will answer your questions and work through all your orders as soon as I am able.
Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Prayer Requests

How can we be praying for you?

Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.
1Th 5:16-18 NKJV

We all have aches in our heart and praises on our tongue. Let's join together in Christ to pray and shout out praise!

Shout your praises! (Rejoice always).

Request prayer. Do not think that your request is too small
(that is mentioned a's a lie from the enemy).

Do not worry if you are back with the same request week after week
(pray without ceasing).

Do not worry if you want to leave an unspoken or remain "unknown"
(God knows what it is and who you are).

In every joy and trial there is a reason
(in everything give thanks).

Do not hesitate. The body of Christ joining together
(for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you!)

We love you! Let's join hands!

Too Cute...Tuesday!

Thank you so much for the beautiful doll! Addy had pool thearpy this afternoon and when we got home she had a package waiting at the front door for her. I definitely wasn't thinking it was her doll until we opened the box and saw her doll! She grinned from ear to ear and her eyes just lit up! She cuddled with her doll until she fell alseep for her afternoon nap! After nap time we took lots of pictures of her and her new favorite doll!! The scipture we chose for her is one of our favorites and means so much to us because of Addy's diagnosis of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". Jeremiah 29:11
Jennifer Garner

~Addy is such a beautiful treasure!
We will be praying over her.

Marvelous Monday!

Did you all have a wonderful weekend? I pray that you did. We have been fighting colds all last week, so we took this weekend just to relax and heal.

The weather was cold, wet and windy so it was the perfect setting for a cup of hot tea in front of the warmth of our very first fire in the fireplace this season. With all my babies and sweet husband around me .... oh, the sweet blessings He has given!

But of course after a season of rest there is once again the season of we are all back at it this morning! As I sit this morning and read through your favorite heart and spirit is full of love and encouragement. Thank you! I pray yours is also!

We need to share those verses with each other often! Maybe we will include that with our prayer requests and praises on Wednesday's.

So...the winner of our Yay...Free Friday??

This week, I am choosing two winners! One randomly drawn from the comments and one who generously gave a donation to Give a Blessing!

They are~ said...
Therefore the Lord is waiting to show you mercy, and is rising up to show you compassion, for the Lord is a just God. Happy are all who wait patiently for Him. Isaiah 30:18

Happy Saturday!


socalgirls4ever for your blessing to Daniel and Lyndsie!

Have a wonderful week everyone! I will send you off with one of the scriptures that the Lord is using to speak to me...

"You are my witnesses, says the LORD,
And my servant whom I have chosen.
That you may know and believe Me,
And Understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed
Nor shall there be after Me"

Isaiah 43:10 NKJV

Give a Blessing to Daniel and Lyndsie

About Us~

Daniel and I are just two ordinary people who want to share with the world the extraordinary "Love Story" the Lord has written for us! We truly believe that we have....A Love Worth Waiting For!

Daniel and I met in the Summer of 2000 at a Summer camp. I was 13 and Daniel was 15. We didn't realize it then, but even at such a young age God was already writing our love story! Daniel and I have been through a lot during the past 10 years that we have known each other!

In the Spring of 2006 at the age of 19, I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and then again in the Spring of 2008. Unfortunately in the Spring of 2008 at the age of 21, I had to have a total hysterectomy. Even though this was absolutely devastating for us, we know that God still has a plan! After 7 months of intense chemo, on April 25th 2009 Daniel and I were married!!

Our wedding day was the best day of ours lives! April 25th 2009 I married my prince charming, my soul mate, my best friend, and my dream come true! I couldn't have asked the Lord for a better man to call my husband!

Our prayer is that our lives will always bring glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ and that together we will be vessels worthy of His use! Through all the trials and uncertainty, the Lord has always been faithful and His grace has always been sufficient!

Even though this journey has been hard and there have been days when we just don't understand..we realize that every step that we have taken on this journey and every step we are going to take has brought us closer to the Lord, closer to each other, and one step closer to our baby!

As you follow our blog and as we share with you our love story and our adoption story we pray that you will see that our deepest desire is to honor the Lord Jesus Christ with our lives!
This month we are going to Give a Blessing to Daniel and Lyndsie.
